    Today's lesson (Flat Tire)

    - do not ride too close to the curb
    - avoid piles of debris you can not identify at first sight
    - if you hear like a plastic bag "POP" coming from the tires, might as well take a break and inspect it.
    (else 3 KM later you'll be changing tires) that happened to me

    been there... I learned the hard way about riding close to the curb when one of my wheels lost traction, causing my foot to slip off its pedal and get crushed against a curb. NOT FUN!
